Pit Ponies

Meet our very own resident celebrities!

The Museum's ponies can be visited in the Stable Yard during the day (usually between 10am - 3pm), so do stop by to say hello and  find out about the role that ponies and horses played in coal mining through the centuries. 

At other times, Eric, Ernie and Finn, our gentle giant Clydesdale horse, can be found in the fields of the Museum site, stretching their legs!
